The Aerospace Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology offers students a broad, challenging and internationally acknowledged education.
It provides skills for aerospace modelling and design, for solving complex engineering tasks, for collaboration with others on projects, and for communicating results and findings in a professional manner.
The programme at KTH is highly international with contacts and students from all over the world. The programme director, Christer Fuglesang, is an astronaut and a KTH alumnus.
Graduates from the programme will gain solid theoretical skills in aerospace modelling, analysis and design, as well as a general ability to approach and solve complex engineering tasks and a habit of working in teams.
Today, Systems Engineering is increasingly important in areas like the aerospace sector, the automotive industry and communications systems.
A systems engineer could work with the design of the control of the damping in an aircraft’s landing gear, how to find the least costly spare parts management system for an air fleet, or in analysing the reliability of a radar system.
A systems engineer is attractive to a large number of industries in various fields.
A master’s degree in the aerospace field from KTH is a mark of quality and opens a wide range of career opportunities in industry and research, as well as within areas outside the aerospace sector.
